New boss tips Rangers to win SPL

Prospective new Rangers owner Charles Green believes the administration-hit club can win the SPL next season if they can keep hold of their players.

Green has already indicated his consortium’s £8.5million bid will not be affected by the Scottish FA decision to uphold a 12-month transfer embargo on the club.

Green said: “To my mind, if we can’t sign anyone but we can keep the existing players, why wouldn’t we win the league?

“So we need the chance to speak with the players.”

Green claims to have assembled 20 potential investors and yesterday named two of those as Indonesian businessman Jude Allen and Middle Eastern lawyer Mazen Houssami, with a Singapore family trust also included.
